Head's up - other Dragon*Con artists, vendors, & attendees..... [Mar. 9th, 2007|11:07 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
I just got off the phone and thought I'd pass along the word to other Dragon*Con folks -

The Hyatt Regency and the Mariott have already BOOKED UP SOLID.

There are only a "couple of King rooms left" at the Hilton, so grab them if you are wanting a room in one of the host hotels. Grab them NOW before they are gone! Geez, I can't believe they all booked up this early.

At least the Hilton has a Trader Vic's! ;)

Here is the info:

http://www.dragoncon.org/dc_location.php#Host_Hotels

The Atlanta Hilton's phone number is 404-659-2000

They want a one-night deposit ($150 with the Dragon*Con rate) up front, and you can cancel any time up until 3 days before the show. So even if you are only 90% sure you're going or still haven't passed jury, etc., you should book now and cancel later if you have to.

Just a friendly reminder so you don't get stuck at a Motel 6 five miles away, lol.

Argh, I have to stay 6 nights to allow a day for driving, the next day is earliest setup, and then takedown on the last day.

((((HUGS)))) Thank you so much for the heads up Jasmine!! O_o I can't believe they are sold out this early either! I just thought the code wasn't working on their website LOL! I didn't realize they were sold out! That's CRAZY! I just booked our room at the Hilton. Is that where your staying too or did you get a room at the Hyatt earlier?

I'm at the Hilton too =) It's a couple of hotels down from where the art show is, but not tooooo far.

Yeah, I remember last year they booked up pretty early, but not until June or so. Sheesh!

Should be fun!

Gosh - I don't have any specific plans to, but I'm trying to go to conventions and shows throughout the world whenever I can, so who knows? I will definitely post here if I ever get up to that part of the country!
